Flux Marine

Flux Marine is bringing the electric vehicle revolution to the marine industry.
We have designed a clean, powerful, and reliable electric outboard motor system to be manufactured and marketed to commercial, military, and recreational boating sectors.

We design, manufacture, and market a novel electric outboard system for marine propulsion. Through a ground-up design of our propulsion systems, we are able to capitalize on inherent characteristics of electric propulsion to offer a more efficient and reliable electric outboard system. Currently in the R&D stage, we have completed initial market research, tested several proof of concept prototypes, negotiated terms for a seed investment, and are currently refining our designs for a range of outboards between 15-115hp to be manufacturable and scalable. As a team of engineering and finance minds, we have combined novel research and business strategies with a deep passion for boats to develop and patent the technology required to disrupt the outboard motor market.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

We offer a line of electrified and thoroughly redesigned outboard motor systems capable of replacing nearly six million gasoline motors in the United States. Our motors reduce operating costs as a result of their increased reliability, while improving the boating experience through noise reduction and reduced air/water pollution. Unlike our competition, we have designed our system from the ground up to utilize all the benefits of electric propulsion. This includes a patent pending cooling system the improves efficiency while minimizing maintenance costs.
